Description - Mad About Star Wars by Jonathan Bresman
A long time ago (thirty years) in a galaxy far, far away (California) . . . It is a period steeped in cinematic lore. Rebel filmmaker George Lucas, striking from a base in Northern California, won a tremendous box office victory against all odds with Star Wars, his sci-fi spectacular. During the ensuing craze, MAD s Usual Gang of Idiots managed to steal a few laughs at the movie s expense, soon discovering that Star Wars was the ultimate pop culture punching bag. Pursuing each Star Wars film s release with more mockery, the MAD men spent the next three decades making a farce of the Force and spreading mirth across the galaxy. Now, in this special edition volume, you ll chuckle as the Star Wars saga s greatest moments are mocked by such MAD greats as Dick DeBartolo, Mort Drucker, Don Martin, and Sergio Aragones; smirk as the striking similarities between the space battles created by Industrial Light & Magic and by the Usual Gang of Idiots are revealed; hum along to the unforgettable Star Wars musical, as penned by MAD s master lyricist, Frank Jacobs; gasp at the startling insights into R2-D2 s love life; and marvel at the real reason why Lucas s lawyers never sued MAD. And that s just the beginning. . . . So, pick up this book and see why, when Star Wars gets the MAD treatment . . . Sith happens! It is your destiny."
